Paris Saint-Germain hotshot Kylian Mbappe has sparked an odd transfer theory among Liverpool fans following his latest social media activities.
One sharp-sighted fan noticed Mbappe’s follow list on Instagram, where the 20-year-old has followed a host of Liverpool players past and present.
From the current squad, the World Cup winner has followed Egypt international Mohamed Salah and Brazilian midfielder Fabinho.
Former players in a list of just 250 people the youngster is following include Steven Gerrard and Philippe Coutinho.
And this has led many supporters to believe this means Mbappe is keen on a move to Anfield.
“Kylian Mbappe just followed Salah, Fabinho and Gerrard on Instagram and also posted "soon" in his Insta story. Don’t play with our lives Kylian, just don’t.

The transfer talk was first sparked among Liverpool fan base over the weekend when the talented goalscorer was pictured with NBA icon and part Liverpool owner LeBron James.
With Times journalist Paul Joyce also retweeting a video shared by the star which sent fans into a frenzy.
The Frenchman has been linked with a move away from Ligue 1, with Real Madrid one of the favourites to sign the forward.
But in an interview with France Football via BBC, the PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi reacted to the rumours of a potential switch.
He answered: “Will he (Mbappe) still be at PSG next year? I am not 100% sure but 200%.”
